The young boy, Zubairu, who lost both his hands after he was beaten by his teacher in the Kagarawal area of Gombe State – has been given a reason to smile again following the arrival of a new set of artificial hands. .
A patriotic Nigerian, Abubakar Narkuta from Jos decided to make the artificial hands for Zubairu.
Zubairu was wounded in March earlier this year after he was brutalised by an Islamic scholar, one Sirajo, who flogged his hands with a sharp object for allegedly stealing.
Following the abuse, the victim’s wounds only worsened, causing both of his hands, just above his wrist, to rot.
Zubairu’s hands had to be amputated at the Federal Medical Centre, Gombe.
